Fortus Review

By Editorial StaffLast Modified: December 14, 2017

As part of the Stratasys production series, the Fortus 250mc is an industrial 3D printer for your commercial 3D-printing needs. The Fortus 250mc has three layer heights so you can customize your resolution, speed and quality of each print. You can also choose custom colors of ABSplus in addition to the nine provided colors from Stratasys.

Three different resolutions, or layer heights, allow you to choose the quality of your prints. The options range from 0.3 to 0.178 mm, which is better than average compared to the best professional 3D printers. Maximum print size is also larger than average too, as you can print objects up to 10 x 10 x 12 inches in size.

Designed for large-scale 3D printing, the Fortus prints with ABSplus, which is strong and durable for long-lasting parts. There are nine colors including black, blue, nectarine, olive green and you can even request custom colors for special projects. One filament cartridge and one support cartridge come with the Fortus 250mc as well. Once those run out, you can order more filament and recycle your old cartridges through the Stratasys recycle program.

This 409-pound, high-quality 3D printer has many of the design features best for production-grade 3D printing. A control screen, large build envelope, compact design and an optional cabinet make the Fortus 250mc easy to use in most office settings.

Stratasys is no stranger when it comes to help and support for commercial 3D printers. On the website, you can find webinars, training, case studies and the usual technical support contact details.

The standard connection method is an Ethernet cable. Stratasys' Insight software allows you to customize your CAD files for printing on the Fortus 250mc.

With three resolutions and highly accurate parts, the Fortus 250mc is well equipped to create quality production pieces. You can even choose custom ABSplus colors and from three layer heights for your creations. Editorial Staff is a community of more than 150,000 small business experts and business owners.
